Event Details

Join us as the School of Social Work honors Dr. Harold Briggs with a Retirement Symposium on Social Justice and Civil Rights.

The symposium will begin with the viewing of Foot Soilders for Equal Justice, a documentary by Donald Hollowell which brings together archival materials and interviews to tell the story of higher education desegregation at the University of Georgia. 

Dr. Briggs will then share his insightful research exploring the "African American Experience" in the United States. The morning will be closed by a research panel facilating discussion, questions and answers.  

Hosted by, The Social Justice, Diversity & Inclusion Committee of the School of Social Work.
